On a day in this summer of perpetual rain we managed to have some good sunshine which was just as well because we were aiming to do a butterfly count in this area. Butterflies need a minimum temperature of 14 degrees celsius to emerge and, preferably, sunshine. Many butterflies this year are emerging later than normal because of the dull skies. We did count a few but not as many as we would normally expect.

We also enjoyed a summer barbecue courtesy of the Forestry Commission which was ably cooked by the rangers. The venison sausages were scrumptious!
